      Very, very tasty! I had my doubts about using whiskey, but took the plunge, and wow! Changes I made: vegetable stock instead of chicken stock, and grated fresh ginger instead of powdered. Other than that, I did it according to instructions. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so will serve it tonight with chopped Romas, steamed broccoli, and basmati rice. I will definitely make this again!
